THIS MONTHS FEATURED MOTORCYCLE ADVENTURE RIDES…
Peruvian Odyssey Motorcycle Tour
15 July – 4th August 2016
For 2016 we feature our new Peru and Machu Picchu Motorcycle Adventure tour which explores in depth the Andes of Peru and all of the Inca and pre-Inca cultures and fantastic new roads that link the Andean cities. While our Atacama to Machu Picchu motorcycle tour visits a lot of the well known Peru highlights like Lake Titicaca, Cuzco and Machu Picchu the new Peruvian Odyssey tour delves deeper into pre-Inca locations of the Wari and Warpa peoples. We ride through the amazing Cañon del Pato (Duck Canyon) on our fleet of BMW Motorcycles, visit the adobe pyramids of the Sun and the Moon (Chan Chan) in Trujillo, ride the Pan-americana highway along Peru’s dry desert coastline, visit Nazca and fly over the mysterious Nazca Lines which are huge geoglyphs carved from the desert sands and rock and ride our motorbikes to Colca Canyon, the second deepest in the world.
Finally this Peru motorcycle adventure takes you back to Cusco and beautiful Machu Picchu which is surely the highlight of any motorcycle adventure in Peru.
What a lot of people don’t realise is that Peru has some of the best roads in South America. Through the Andes there are new roads of silky smooth tarmac the weave through deep valleys and then ride over high passes that link these Peruvian cities together. Off to the side are stunning views and outside of the main cities there is very little traffic.
This tour was created by our staff that have spent considerable time in Peru and who love these regions away from the usual visitor’s radar and we’d like you to join us to show you the beauty that can be experienced on a Peru Motorcycle Adventure Tour.
